Give yourself the gift of memories

Welcome from your San Diego Maternity/Newborn Photographer and Baby Whisperer


Hi! My name is Kristen from Kristen Marie Imagery. I am a San Diego photographer based in North County. I specialize in newborn photography, maternity photography and baby photography (including Milestone and Cake Smash sessions). I absolutely adore all things bellies and babies and live on newborn snuggles. What motivates me? I love being able to use my extensive experience and talent to create gorgeous images of this special time for you to keep as memories. Seriously, it is the best job ever. I love photographing golden light, soft, neutral colors and the beauty and grace of creating images celebrating new life.

A little about me- I love coffee, everything pink and sparkles and could eat sushi for every meal. The loves of my life include my husband (we have been together for almost 20 years!), our seven year old son and our pug Benjamin. If I am not taking photos you can most likely find me in leggings and a messy bun, editing photos with TLC or the Hallmark Movie Channel on in the background.

My clients describe me as positive, patient, and sweet. I have been referred to a baby whisperer on more then one occasion which is a title I proudly claim. If you are interested in a session you can contact me by clicking here or giving me a call (619) 736-0510

“Kristen is probably the sweetest and the best photographer you can ever imagine! We had a wonderful time at her studio last weekend. She is very flexible, understanding and tries to work with mom and baby’s unpredictable schedules. My baby wasn’t very cooperative but Kristen made it work! At the end of the session, my baby felt so comfortable and loved Kristen so much she didnt even wanna leave. If you want beautiful, quality pictures and pleasant, stress-free experience, as well as reasonable pricing, then look no further. I’m so glad I found Kristen! Don’t let those precious moments go away. Book your session early and talk with her to discuss colors/ styles. She can make it happen!”- Mi R.

Why invest in a newborn photography session with me? 

You are here because you know the value of a photograph. You want every little detail of your precious newborn captured forever in beautiful portraits that will will cherish throughout the years. When choosing me to photograph your baby, you will choosing a full time, experienced professional who will safely and expertly handle your new baby. I have invested an incredible amount in education in posing and lighting, equipment and beautiful handmade props/textures/bonnets to craft beautiful portraits of your newborn. My sessions are relaxed and fun! Keeping baby (and you!) happy and comfortable in my number one priority. 

As an early childhood educational specialist, my early passion has been working with babies, small children and families. Therefore, choosing newborn photography to specialize in was an easy choice for me. Investing in a photography session with me ensures that you will have beautiful portraits of your baby taken in a safe and nurturing environment. I am a firm believer in respecting each child (no matter how small) as a unique individual with needs that are meant to be honored. I love getting to know each infant and I listen to them in each session to make sure they are comfortable and secure.

I am an all-inclusive photographer, meaning there are no extra charges for digital images and printing rights are included in every collection so you can print and share your photos as much as your heart desires. I offer a variety of newborn baby and portrait collections to meet different price points as well as to provide flexibility so you can receive exactly what you would like out of your photo session.  I also offer prints and products such as birth announcements, gorgeous custom albums, and heirloom boxes with prints to preserve your memories.

Customized Newborn and Maternity Photo Sessions

I love to customize each session to meet the needs and desires of each family. For each session, I will send over a questionnaire. We will go over colors, props, locations and the overall feel you would like to experience and see in your photos.

What I love about being a maternity and a newborn baby photographer is it allows me to develop lasting relationships throughout the years. This makes each session more then just a job- it is a chance to share in the lives of my families and watch their babies grow!  My clients often return to me to for milestone and cake smash sessions, as well as family portraits and even subsequent pregnancy announcements and maternity sessions. I know you have your choice of San Diego family photographers, so I feel honored each time parents choose me to share in these special moments.
